With the start of the school year (albiet an interesting one!) and college kids moving back to town, I’m reminded of some of my sweetest college memories. See, we live in Athens, GA – I wasn’t a photographer for long when we lived her last (about 5 years ago), but I still captured endless photos of date nights, adventures with friends, gamedays and more. One moment I remember fondly was bid night for my sorority (AOII)!
That night, I met & stayed the night in the same room as Laura. One year later, we lived together in the sorority house. And the following two years we lived in a house with 4 other AOPis. We spent so many moments together in those years… and the ones to come, but some of the SWEETEST we’ve experienced have been in the last year or so as we have welcomed little boys into our families.
It’s so special to see Laura and her husband become parents to the most darling little Haynes. Their journey of bringing Haynes home was a powerful one. I’m so honored that I was able to capture such a monumental time for them, and can’t wait to see all the memories our families have together (and for Oliver & Haynes to be University of Georgia Bulldawgs together one day, of course).
As a tiny babe, Haynes had the most darling cheeks (and still does when writing this!!), and their sweet and silly pupper, Nelly, has taken on the big sister role perfectly. Take a look through these sweet photos from Haynes’ newborn session & you’re guaranteed to smile!
Also, what a win when your sister/best friend lives nearby & can come pop over for a few cousin pictures. Sweetest!
